7 That Wonderful Taste of Fanta

That Wonderful Taste of Fanta

Posted on June 5, 2013 by team

What drinks were popular in the USSR? Whcih flavours did people choose? Let us remember.


Drinks sold in the streets had been the same for dozens of years. There were two types of them – manual and automatic ones. The parity between them was achieved in the middle of the 70s and each type had its pros and cons.

A glass of soda had the same price whether it was taken from a machine or a seller, but a glass of soda with syrup bought from a seller was 1 kopeck more expensive. Even at a higher price one could buy a very tasty double syrup drink. And sellers could always give the odd money back.

      Yes. The machines washed the glasses though.

      And as the Soviet people were gloriously healthy in preparation for a war against their “most probably opponent”…it was all good :-P
